If you have a dental emergency please call Machesney Dental Studio to schedule a virtual consult with Dr. Munshi. We will try our best to get you in as soon as possible and provide necessary treatment.
Taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) (if you are not allergic) can help alleviate pain. You can apply ice 10-20 minutes every hour for severe pain.
Applying an over-the-counter medicine, like Orajel or campho-phenique, will pose as a bandage-like film over the sore.
Bleeding after an extraction
If bleeding is substantial, you can place a thick gauze pad over the extraction site, while applying pressure. If bleeding still ensues, you can soak a tea bag in water, put it inside a thin gauze pad, and apply pressure for one full hour.
Bitten tongue or lip
Applying ice or pressure to the area will most likely decrease swelling or bleeding. If the laceration is deep (larger than ¼ inch) or if the pain persists, please call our McKinney dentists.
Do not move your jaw. Seek immediate medical help at a hospital emergency room.
Tooth knocked out
If you cannot put the tooth back in place and hold it there while rushing to come see us, then you can put it in a cup of milk or water, and come see us immediately.
Place a piece of soft wax where the chipped area is, and then schedule an appointment with us. Place the pieces of your chipped tooth in a cup of milk, or in water with a pinch of salt.
